Softening into Silence

Live Friday, April 23rd from 10a to 12p Pacific.

These days we are just too busy, too occupied, too distracted, too over-scheduled.

We try so many strategies: new calendars, to-do lists, New Year’s resolutions, and endless promises to ourselves to do less.

But we don’t. This is where Restorative yoga comes in. 

Restorative yoga poses are positions which are supported by props, which are still, and which are held for a long time, up to 20 minutes, unlike classic yoga poses which are more about moving and stretching.

Restorative yoga is a concrete practice that is simple, easy, and a very powerful tool for reducing stress. And only 20 minutes of a Restorative pose will change your day, your mood, and your perspective.

Join Restorative Yoga pioneer Judith Hanson Lasater and her daughter Lizzie Lasater for this spacious two-hour experiential session. Open to all students: this is a practice-based not lecture-based session.

Preparing for Class

  • Prepare your physical space: dress warmly, bring an eye-cover and socks, plus all your props, pillows, blankets, and towels. And close the door.

  • Prepare your digital space: close all other programs on your device, turn off notifications, and put your phone on airplane mode.

  • And lastly, prepare your family/roommates to support your practice: let them know that two hours without interruption is a gift they can give you.
